[2017/04/24 - Take The Long Way Home ]
Title Text: I got FIVE dollars

It seems Tarot set the date bar way too high with all of their dimension hopping.

Also, cute.

Rick is nearly as evil as Dissension is.

At least Peanut stayed upright this time!

Let's hope that date is worth it.

Also, a Grapenut tease?

I've been paid less for Dog-sitting. It was for family, but the point stands.

This was too cute of an ending! Next arc better have a ton of slapstick to balance out my fragile masculinity.

Not what i expected, but it's a very sweet ending. Totally unexpected.

Peanut learns more about this dating stuff from Grape much easier, doesn't he? =P

Oh Rick, do you know what you've just wrought with that last panel?
...
Eh, what the heck, I'm totally on board the Grapenut ship. Here's hoping this is a point toward it actually happening.

They have to go back. Peanut forgot his satchel!

Walking home as it’s getting late,
talking turkey and decrying fate,
lumping everything onto one plate
Grape and her brotherly mate date.
Hurling tales and curling tails
the bond against which another pales
Affection is the wind in their sails;
any attempt to beak them fails.
Friendship dates are never boring,
they often leave the spirit soaring
and, later, as his bed he falls in?
Odds are Peanut will soon be snoring.

Maybe, but you generally don't refer to a "friend date" specifically as a date. It's usually just called "hanging out", or something else to that effect. Granted, in this case the phrasing could just be put down to Peanut's innocence, but still...

you mean the love she's suspected since like the third arc? and known for sure since at least 2010?

Ok Grape, you may not need a water park to have fun, but what about being at a water park with your date? Anyone?

I mean, you may not be able to have any romantic moments, but hey! Water park!

Yeaaaaaaah I have a lot of questions. This is cute n' all but I'm pretty sure Peanut should have a grasp on the difference between one or the other.
Then again, their relationship has always been really weird now that I think about it. Namely referring to the last few panels of this page:
Image
And it's not like they ever stopped being "mushy", they've occasionally done it every now and then, just not as frequently recently. But this is always how their friendship has been since then, and frankly I never quite thought about how that kinda bugged me actually. I don't really care for shipping, I just go with what's canon, but personally it just seems kinda... messed up? I mean if Tarot and Max are cool with it then it's technically fine but it just doesn't seem like the healthiest thing to do for two people in a relationship.

Again, cool that two friends... or siblings...kinda-- can be that close and not technically be in a relationship, but this just kinda reminded me of how uncomfortable it makes me :?
Real good ending though Rick! ^^

Well, not so much anymore, what with Tarot having lost most of her powers, and even if she did still have them, she kinda banned Peanut and Grape from using her as a holodeck.

That was probably one of the powers she lost anyway.

She is kinda being depicted as chilling toward Peanut anyway.

Looking at the last panel...
At first I was like "Awww".
And then I was like "Wait, a date?? :shock: I thought they were best friends! Aren't Peanut and Grape thus going to cheat respectively on Tarot and Max?? Why?? I love those two love relationships! And didn't Rick himself say that it is okay for a male and a female characters to be just (best) friends, something I completely agree with and wish so many more people would agree with??"
And then I saw this comment :

D-Rock Wrote:

I looked up "romantic friendship" on Wikipedia: the description depicts pretty well the relationship between Peanut and Grape. And I also remembered the extremely heartwarming end of the Imaginate, Too! arc.
And I was like "Oh!... Okay then. Awwww" :)

Even though I completely agree with CHAOKOcartoons: this is kinda weird and I hope Tarot and Max are okay with it.

I hope Rick never ends Peanut-Tarot and Grape-Max just in favor of a romantic love relationship between Peanut and Grape. Their extremely close friendship (/sibling relation?) is fine by me!
And once again, I hope Tarot and Max have always known and have always been okay with it.

But I'm puzzled: I can't figure out which one says "You wanna go on a date?" and which one accepts by saying "Eh, okay". (And also, why "eh"???)

based solely on personality I figured Peanut asked and Grape accepted. and the "eh" is just to indicate tone. it's not an emphatic yes, just a "sure, why not"

In the last panel, Grape has her tail crossed with Peanut's. I'd see that as a Pet's version of hand holding, even though they do have hands. Based on that I'd say he asked and she accepted.

Also, since he is the one asking about dates, it would make sense for him to want to explore the process and asked Grape to help him with that.

What i really liked about this comic in particular is the personal growth Peanut is going through. Grape acts like this experience was nothing to her, but to Peanut it's like a world of exploration. Him dating Grape is just utterly adorkable when you think about his line of thought on the lesson.

If someone asked me to the waterpark for a date i'd swear my life to them. there's a waterpark close to me that has one slide with an honest-to-god loop.

It's not that weird, I've seen fences like that. Large privacy fences that have the vertical slats on both sides of the support beams. We don't see if from any angle that shows it's thickness, so it's probably one of those.

Peanut and Grape are finally going to go on a date! I've been wanting this since before Pete made his first appearance!

Maybe, but you generally don't refer to a "friend date" specifically as a date. It's usually just called "hanging out", or something else to that effect. Granted, in this case the phrasing could just be put down to Peanut's innocence, but still...


I don't think Peanut means it as a friend date. Grape knows he likes her and its been made blatantly clear that he wants to be her boyfriend on a romantic level. Remember the farm? She hooked up with max when he was walking up to ASK her to be his girlfriend. The event broke his heart which is why tarot/dragon took advantage of him to get close to what was going on. Remember tarot didn't get with him because she wanted to she did it because dragon made her. They just sort of ended up liking each other after that and as far as grape well.... Lets be honest Max has never really been a good boyfriend.

I am just hoping that this becomes a bigger thing as time continues and isn't just done to mess with us.
